Desiderium

Desiderium

Desiderium - the desperate longing for what was, but now is lost. A contemporary flamenco piece inspired by the sombre life experiences embedded in the flamenco ‘cante por seguiriyas’. Through movement, dance, rhythm, and music the interdisciplinary piece explores the notion of the continuous sense of yearning for the parts of ourselves which we’ve had to let go of to cope with changes in our surroundings. It further delves into the perpetual heaviness of grief for our childhood innocence that, although may appear sporadically in moments of free-spirited impulsiveness, may never return. If we’ve lost the essences in ourselves linked to our vulnerability, how can we truly connect with each other as we face an increasingly divisive world where we are almost clinging to life to continue to survive?
